Description

I could have it modified to weld one on I guess but it would have been a little messy as that bolt hole in the chassis for the centre mount is right where my silencer clamp and lambda boss are. I should imagine the only significant movement in the bush is in the roll axis when inertial forces on the mass of the silencer, which is outboard of the mount, cause the whole exhaust system to flex in torsion.

I'm not worried about the lack of centre support - with the cat fitted I've actually stood in it the centre (and I'm quite large!

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. I'm not sure what would have happened if it weren't a bobbin, maybe torn the whole thing out the body? I was very careful to realign, slot, file, bend, adjust all my mounts to take and stress out of the bobbins as far as possible - ie it looks when installed, nice and straight, not angled between top and bottom, not in shear. I checked to make sure that the holes in the exhaust and the chassis bracket are large enough to allow the bolt to pivot through a large angle, ensuring that the load is always on the rubber spacers rather than being a shear load on the bolt. If I can, I'd like to source the parts myself, then take it to a specialist and get it fitted, but to do that I need to know exactly how it needs sorted and what bits to get.

i think you could get an rc40 fitting kit to do the job you want it too, you may have to drill some holes in the centre of the frame to mount the bobbins and the hanging plate - nothign too serious.I'm planning to get an RC40 mounting kit, which has the two rubber bobbins, the centre mount, and some U-clamps, then take it into a garage and see what they can do.

The rear silencer doesn't come far enough forward to pick up on the centre mounting bracket neatly (the bracket aligns with the clamp that secures the silencer to the collector). Also, having the header or downpipe secured to the differential; having the subframe remounted with solid items on anything newer than MK III cars, and having the engine securely mounted are crucial to mini exhaust longevity. I must admit I don't see the advantage of a poly bush isolator for something like an exhaust, though. You can actually tune the stiffness of it all my tightening the nyloc nut to adjust the compression of the bushes.

WAY more expensive than the correct ones, but might be a bit more available stateside if you just can't wait.

Assuming it's an RC40 (I wouldn't know, it looks like it could be though) would this kit contain all the bits I'd need? I pivoted the mounting bracket a little and carefully aligned the exhaust to ensure that the two brackets were exactly parallel, which is alwaya a good idea using the original bobbin too. My initial concern about not using the washers was that the load would not be even across the rubber and the edges of the brackets might just bite in. I've got both mounts installed - front and rear of main silencer, Using a Powerspeed unit for the last 12 or so years. So, I'd like to get this sorted, I've no problem with taking it to a Mini-friendly garage if necessary, as it's probably a bit beyond my capabilities to sort it myself.I used a nyloc nut and inserted the bolt from above so it wouldn't tend to fall out even if the nut came off. It seems to have pretty much the same stiffness and range of movement as the original bobbin when pushing and pulling the system around.
